Here’s the official synopsis:

Trained killer Ladybug (Brad Pitt), who wants to give up the life of an assassin, but is pulled back in by his handler Maria Beetle (Sandra Bullock) in order to collect a briefcase on a bullet train heading from Tokyo to Morioka. Once onboard, he and the other competing assassins onboard discover that their objectives are all connected.

As one of my most anticipated films of 2022 I’ve long been awaiting the release of the first trailer for Bullet Train and this trailer does not disappoint! Jammed full of almost live-action anime action, a good dose of uncontrollable carnage, strikingly stylized visuals and some laugh-out-loud comedic moments, Bullet Train is shaping up to be a totally unique piece of action cinema and plays in perfectly with Leitch’s genre-pushing directing style and ‘action as narrative’ storytelling direction. In short, it’s utterly mental and so much fun!

Academy Award-winning actor and Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt jumps headfirst into the fray as Ladybug, a highly proficient and respected international assassin who while in Japan on a mission discovers his tranquil-zen side and decides to chill out a bit and just go with the flow. And that’s then when things immediately kick off on the bullet train line that he’s just crossed onto and it becomes clear that the mysterious package that he’s guarding has significant implications and a group of independent killers is now on the hunt for him. With nowhere to go and this group of crazed killers converging on him, Ladybug can only do what he does best, and that means it’s time for some utter chaos to be unleashed.

Not only does Pitt handle the film’s in-your-face action elements and we see him go to town with an assortment of guns, knives and his own fists, but he also brings out this hilarious quippy comedic style to Ladybug as this chilled-out dude who kind of just wants to exists in the moment, and not have to deal with mowing throw people. It’s really fun to watch, and Leitch knows how to get the best out of his lead performer and the resulting images in the trailer speak for themselves.

Set to a Japanese rendition of the classic boppy beats of The Bee Gees ‘Staying Alive’, this trailer for Bullet Train is an utterly zany ride and the action and suspense is very fun to watch. Stylistically cool for all the right reasons, Leitch brings an almost live-action, hyper-real anime quality to the film’s visuals and it’s a hell of a lot of fun to look at. Visually striking and dynamic, with great comedic timing and bone-splitting action, Bullet Train is shaping up to be a thunderously cool rollercoaster ride of a movie and Brad Pitt brings out the badass swagger as only he can.
